US states demand Anthem should provide hack information quickly to customers
Attorneys general of ten U.S. states have pulled up health insurer Anthem for not quickly communicating directly with people affected by a hack of its IT system.
The officials want information and reassurances from the company within 24 hours.
“As the days pass with no direct communications from Anthem, our offices are receiving more and more communications from constituents expressing greater and greater frustration,” wrote Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen in a letter Tuesday to Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish.
The hack could have exposed the personal information of as many as 80 million people, if not more, Jepsen said.
